Rotherham United will be having a change on Saturday and it’s nothing to do with the team or kit – it’s the dugouts!
The Millers backroom staff and substitutes will swap dugouts and sit in what, until this weekend, has been the ‘away’ dugout.
Speaking to the Official Site Manager Paul Warne admits that some of it is due to superstition saying, ‘We haven’t done well at home this season and we are a little superstitious and I know, in the past, other clubs have done it.
‘It might help, it might not. If we win we’ll stop there, if we lose we could move back up the hill.
‘All the staff had their say and they feel it might help.’
One thing Warney hasn’t mentioned is that the linesman, on that side of the pitch, runs past what was the away dugout – so maybe our staff might be able to help him out when he has a difficult decision to make!
The Millers take on Bolton Wanderers on Saturday who are fetching a fair sized crowd with them so it will be interesting to see if the move works.
